Organic food vs. locally-grown food
Unlike organic standards, there is no specific definition for “local food”. It could be grown in your local community, your state, your region, or your country. During large portions of the year it is usually possible to find food grown close to home at places such as a farmer’s market.
The benefits of locally grown food
💚Financial: Money stays within the local economy. More money goes directly to the farmer, instead of to things like marketing and distribution.
💚Transportation: In the U.S., for example, the average distance a meal travels from the farm to the dinner plate is over 1,500 miles. Produce must be picked while still unripe and then gassed to "ripen" it after transport. Or the food is highly processed in factories using preservatives, irradiation, and other means to keep it stable for transport.
💚Freshness: Local food is harvested when ripe and thus fresher and full of flavor.
Small local farmers often use organic methods but sometimes cannot afford to become certified organic. Visit a farmer’s market and talk with the farmers to find out what methods they use.

Em alusão à Semana Mundial da Alimentação, o Centro Colaborador em Alimentação e Nutrição do Escolar (CECANE/UFRGS) realiza no sábado (20), na Feira Ecológica do Bom Fim (FEBF), a oficina visual “Alerta à rotulagem: o que vai dentro dos alimentos ultraprocessados?”. A banca da Acolhida, localizada na Avenida José Bonifácio, quase esquina com a Vieira de Castro, receberá uma exposição mostrando a quantidade de açúcares, gorduras e sal presente nos alimentos industrializados, contando com a explicação de nutricionistas, assessores e estagiárias do quadro técnico do Cecane/Ufrgs, em parceria com o Programa de Extensão e Pesquisa em Saúde Urbana, Ambiente e Desigualdades da mesma universidade e o Centro de Empreendimentos em Alimentação e Nutrição (Ceanut).
A iniciativa integra uma ampla estratégia de sensibilização sobre a campanha pela adoção da nova rotulagem de alimentos, que terá consulta pública aberta pela Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária (Anvisa) a partir de novembro.
1 of 3 compost bins is almost ready for service. I've got to build and add the lid and it will be ready to go. Making my own compost is one of the steps I am taking to make my farm more #sustainable . #fresh#local#organic#clevelandtn
It's always nice when coworkers bring me new healthy snacks to try! I approve of this! 21 grams of protein in one bag of Fava beans. Non Gmo. Gluten Free. High in fiber. 👌 I'm loving the name too. 😃
let's talk about jammy eggs.
they are my latest obsession right now😋
the egg whites are set but the yolks still slightly running and almost the consistency of "jam".
to make, all you do it bring 5" of water to a boil in a saucepan, then CAREFULLY lower your eggs into the boiling water (i use a slotted spoon). the second the eggs hit the rumbling water, set your timer for 6 1/2 minutes. while you wait, get a big bowl full of ice water readily available near the sink. as soon as the 6 1/2 minutes are up, using a slotted spoon, please to eggs in the ice cold water bath. let them sit a few minutes, carefully peel off the shells, sprinkle some salt and pepper on them, and you're good to go!
today i'm eating 2 of them with a paleo sesame bagel, smashed avocado and homegrown microgreens🌱

Thank you to @nytcooking for the duck recipe and all your support to my kitchen throughout the year!
I’m making soup tonight from a lot of leftover bones and the kitchen smells amazing. It’s that time of year when everyone seems to be sick and my favorite way to combat it is with bone broth from wild and free range animals. Plus it’s a great way to stretch your ingredients further after you’ve enjoyed all the meat. The nutrition is in the bones, so don’t forget to use them! Have y’all ever made bone broth?
Just now finished mixing and bottling Galeos Sesame/chia seeds flavor.
Sesame seeds- Sesamum indicum-is a flowering plant. They come from the Sesame Fruit, and plants are dried before the seeds are removed. Sesame plants are one of the oldest known plants to be cultivated. First, domesticated in the Indian subcontinent dating more than 5000 years ago. Ability to grow,where no other crops grow, Sesame has been called A Survivor Crop. Small, but have multiple benefits because of their high levels of calcium and magnesium. They also contain iron , phosphorus, manganese, zinc and copper. Also high in fiber too, so facilitates digestion.
Chia seeds - comes from desert plant Salvia Hispanica- grown in Mexico dating back to’ Mayan and Aztec cultures. “Chia” , means Strength, and these cultures used chia seeds as an energy booster. Chia seeds are a concentrated food containing healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, carbs, protein, fiber, antioxidants, calcium.
We love using both in our Dressings !
Keep drizzling Galeos Versatile Dressings on your food.

🌶 Fifty shades of red 🌶 These come from 3 little chili plants. After I harvest them, I leave them out to dry on the sunny kitchen window sill. They keep for months. I love adding them to fried rice dishes for that little extra kick!
